If you delayed enrollment in Medicare because you were still working at age 65 and you aren't getting Social Security or Railroad Retirement benefits, you should be aware of how that decision can impact your enrollment and timing for Medicare Supplement Insurance (Medigap), Medicare Prescription Drug Coverage (Part D), and Medicare Advantage (Part C).

Description:

You'll learn when Medicare enrollment is automatic. In the past, typical ages for Medicare and Social Security benefits enrollment were the same. Now, that has changed. This is why people don't always know they may need to take an action to get Medicare, or if they can expect to be automatically enrolled. You'll help people who are eligible for enrollment know if it'll be automatic for them, and inform them about the decisions they may need to make based on their circumstances.

Description:

You'll learn when non-United States (U.S.) citizens, who move from other countries to the U.S. may qualify to get Medicare coverage. Timing of enrollment depends on their permanent resident status and how long they've lived in the U.S. It's important to understand how these elements can impact someone's eligibility and timing for Medicare.
